I had no idea this was required reading in MN! I came across the title in Deconstructing Penguins book. My kids are naturally appalled by the utopian community and we have great discussions about euthanasia, free will, biological parenting, etc. I hope the schools do not use this book to promote a different agenda.

I always love these sneak peeks into your family life - your children are so uniquely talented! Love the altar boy set. "Bored" should have been at our Mass Sunday after Christmas when we had a small fire in the sacristy. One of my children, who shall remain nameless, exclaimed, "Finally something exciting happened at Mass!" Good thing I have at least one or two pious children to counterbalance the other one ; )
